    1.12 Comedy Is a Business: Working on the Road with Shane Torres

    1.12 Comedy Is a Business: Working on the Road with Shane Torres

    After starting out in Portland, it wasn't long before Shane Torres was taken out by a more experienced comedian to be shown the ropes of working the road. Further success as a New Face at Montreal JFL Festival, moving to New York City, and eventually landing his own Comedy Central Half Hour has only helped Shane's career on the road, as he spends a major chunk of the year working outside of town at comedy clubs across the country. To Jake and Stu, Shane oozes wisdom about how to treat comedy as a profession and a business, rather than something you "just do."

Many comedians start in smaller markets and find themselves asking, "When should I move to New York or L.A.? Should I even move at all?"

    1.9 A Grain of Salt: Open Mics, Shows, and Working Hard with Subhah Agarwal

    1.9 A Grain of Salt: Open Mics, Shows, and Working Hard with Subhah Agarwal

    Comedian Subhah Agarwal had a reputation as one of the hardest working open mic comedians in the game when the PBS web series Modern Comedian devoted an entire episode to her. But she's not known as an "open micer" anymore. Subhah discusses quantity vs. quality, writing habits, and whether people notice when you work hard enough or if you need to "hustle," which sparks a debate between Jake and Stu on the legitimacy of the "be so good they can't ignore you" philosophy. After putting in countless hours and waiting for people to notice, Subhah has some advice about making things happen for yourself by going after what you want.

Bada Bing Bada BOOM!

What a quality podcast from some guys that are working in the biz. They are doing their research to bring you legit info, not none of that fake news B.S. These are some cold hard facks. These guys know what they don't know about what they're doing. Really good stuff, also you should watch their stand up.
